Today I'm pleased to share another guest post from my lovely friend Sophia. You can read her first post on Dear Sabrina, a rumination on decision-making, here.
Eight Views of an Abandoned Dock
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I'm fairly obsessed with a certain abandoned dock not far from our home, which I encounter on my midday walks. The scene varies day to day, depending on the light, the clouds, the season, the surface of the sea.
So Long, Leonard Cohen
I'm a bit late to the point on this, but still I wanted to note the passing of one of my favorite singers. I've been listening to Leonard Cohen on repeat since he died last week, and his lyrics have been running through my mind. Especially, in the light of the election, this one, allowing...
Thoughts on Family, Geography, and Home
While we were in Michigan after my father's death, we had the great fortune to spend time with extended family. One of my favorite moments was the Saturday before Halloween, when James and I took the kids to a pumpkin patch and brought home a haul of pumpkins to carve with my Uncles Lee and Chris. Carving pumpkins...
Searching for the Northern Lights
Today I'm excited to share another post from a contributor and photographer. I met Craig R. Allen at a party in our small town outside of Stockholm. He's an Englishman living in Stockholm with his girlfriend; about a year ago he sold everything he had to follow his dream of exploring the world--and taking phenomenal photographs of it....
A Couple Swedish Singers to Love
While plenty of American music is played on the radio here in Sweden, there aren't enough Swedish songs on the radio in America (though Jose Gonzalez is half Swedish). Of course we all know ABBA, but there's a lot of great music being made in Sweden right now that you probably don't know about. Here are two Swedish singers I'm...
September's First Autumn Weekend
While it may have officially become autumn just last week, here in our part of Sweden it's felt like fall since early August. Still, we wanted to herald the new season with an outdoor weekend--and a trip to an apple orchard.
Birthday Sail in the Stockholm Archipelago
I mentioned that we went sailing on my birthday as part of the weekend's celebrations, so I thought it would be fun to share some pictures. So much blue! We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place and to have such wonderful neighbors.
Gorgeous Prints from Artifact Uprising
About a year ago I realized we had a problem--a major problem. We had thousands of pictures of our kids, all of which were on the computer. We had approximately zero pictures of our kids that existed out here in the real world. If we wanted to reminisce with August and Leif about their babyhood, their cousins,...
Visiting the Carl Eldhs Studio Museum in Stockholm
Last week I finally had the chance to do something I've been wanting to do almost since the day we moved to Stockholm: I visited the Carl Eldhs Studio Museum. It's a small museum situated near the top of a hill in a park on the northern end of the city. The first summer we...
